Bills, S Jordan Poyer Agree To Extension

Jordan Poyer delivered for the Bills on a lower-middle-class (for the NFL) contract over the past three years, and the team will reward him. The Bills and the veteran safety agreed on an extension Tuesday, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com tweets.

The new deal will pay him $20.5MM over two years, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter) hears. That’ll take him through the 2022 season, meaning that both he and safety mate Micah Hyde are each signed beyond this coming season.

Poyer, 29 in April, turned in a career-high 107 tackles last year. His stop totals have been trending up ever since he joined the Bills in 2017. All in all, he’s made 302 tackles for the Bills across the last three seasons, serving mostly as a part-timer.

In bigger news out of Buffalo, the Bills swung a blockbuster deal to acquire Stefon Diggs from the Vikings earlier this week. On the other side of the ball, they landed former Panthers defensive end Mario Addison on a three-year deal.

  1. sports is life

    Agreed, I’m watching other teams splurging on other FA’s but here’s Beane maintaining the nucleus of his stout defense while adding pieces to it without breaking the bank

    Watch Robey will be back in town shortly

    Tre White will get his deal once the CBA is sorted and cap figures firmed up

    Buffalo will again have a top 5 defense
